The Supreme Court on Tuesday accorded protection from arrest to exiled Bangladeshi writer Tasleema Nasreen, who has had an FIR registered against her in Uttar Pradesh under the Information Technology Act over a contentious tweet. In her tweet, Nasreen had criticised the meeting between AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal and cleric Maulana Taureeque Raza Khan, who had approved of issuing a fatwa against her in 2007. Subsequently, an FIR was lodged against her in Bareilley in UP. A bench led by Chief Justice P Sathasivam restrained the police from taking any coercive action against her and sought a reply from UP government as to why the FIR against her be not quashed. The court also tagged her petition with a bunch of other similar petitions that have sought to get Section 66A of the IT Act as unconstitutional because of its fragrant misuse.
